Layering lip balm but your lips still feel flaky? You need a scrub. Just like the rest of our face, the lips need some exfoliation too. But don’t reach for a pricey pot of sugar scrub to perfect your pout. Muslin cloths are a gentle, efficient lip scrub - particularly great for wintery weather, or priming the lips pre-lipstick to up your colors staying power. Rub the damp cloth in a circular motion over chapped or flaking lips, pat dry, and follow up with a hydrating lip balm.
Sensitive body exfoliation.
Body scrubs, gloves, bristles and sponges can be a little aggressive for some. Not the muslin cloth. It’ll gently exfoliate your body and help increase the absorption of the rest of your following bodycare. Plus it’s especially good for sun-damaged or flaking skin, to gently polish away any peeling skin without the pain. And to you mamas - this is a great tool for wiping babies’ faces without rubbing - and it’s reusable and washable, unlike baby wipes.
Cooling eye mask.
Technology, pollution, air conditioning, and long office hours - daily life is tougher on your eyes than you think. Pop a damp muslin cloth in the freezer for ten minutes et voilà, a refreshing cold compress with no need for those blue-gel eye cooling masks that always get too cold. Perfect to depuff, reduce eye redness and calm irritation after a long day in front of the computer/just general living. Follow up with a ginseng-powered brightening eye gel to keep puffiness at bay.
Hot tip - soak your muslin cloth in warm water and lay over your face for one to two minutes. It’ll soften your skin to help you cleanse better, and you can apply over a face mask to open pores and facilitate absorption of skin-loving ingredients. Oh and for the boys - this technique (as any good barber knows) is a great hot-towel trick to help soften beard bristles. Use along with our protective nourishing shave oil for an easier, closer cut.
So since the muslin cloth has some pretty great credentials - we thought it deserved some credit. We’ve made ours larger, with a handy hanging loop to help it dry out, and we've included it as part of a separate twin pack you can buy on it’s own. Or get the full Cleanse & Reveal routine for only £16.50 (inc. recyclable travel bag) and save on your best cleansed skin yet.
